Games to Try on Your iPad

Your iPad is perfect for gaming. So, of course, all sorts of games and gaming accessories are available for your iPad. Some games are ported over from iPhone and some are custom-made for iPad. You can choose from arcade games, kids games, card and board games, and adventure games.

Here are six great games to try that won’t break the bank:

  • SCRABBLE for iPad ($9.99): SCRABBLE is now available on iPad and it’s hot. Shake your iPad to shuffle tiles. Use the drag-and-drop motion to play your letters. Reach out to your Facebook friends to take the game to the multiplayer level.

  • Broken Sword: Director’s Cut HD ($6.99): This classic adventure game lets you become the main character to experience all the game has to offer. Great art and animation distinguish this game, and the iPad version has a handy hint system you’ll appreciate.

Games take up a lot of memory, so choose the games you buy wisely. If you no longer want to play a game, delete it from your iPad to save space.
